Everton VS Chelsea
Saturday (23/12/2017)
13:30 (WAT)
Sam Allardyce faces another stern test of his unbeaten start as Everton manager with the visit of Premier League champions Chelsea.

The former England manager has won four and drawn one of his five games in charge, most notably earning a draw against Liverpool in his hardest test to date.

Conte's side arguably pose a bigger threat, having won eight of their previous 10 games as they look to hold of the likes of Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool in the race for a top-four finish.

Team news
Everton have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the visit of the champions.

Ross Barkley continues to near a first-team return after a hamstring injury, while Yannick Bolasie must build up fitness after a year out with an ACL.

Chelsea will be missing Alvaro Morata after the striker picked up his fifth booking of the season for his celebration in the EFL Cup win against Bournemouth.

That could see Eden Hazard once again lead the line with Michy Batshuayi disappointing in midweek.

David Luiz remains sidelined with a knee injury amid transfer speculation linking him with a move away from Stamford Bridge.

Predicted line-ups
Everton starting XI: Pickford; Kenny, Holgate, Williams, Martina; Gueye, Schneiderlin; Davies, Rooney, Sigurdsson; Calvert-Lewin

Chelsea starting XI: Courtois; Azpilcueta, Christensen, Cahill; Moses, Kante, Bakayoko, Alonso; Willian, Hazard, Pedro
